The holiday season is upon us and one of the most fun and unique attractions is returning to the Vegas Strip. For the seventh consecutive year, The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas welcomes the return of The Ice Rink at the Boulevard Pool.
The part-time concert venue and pool will transform into a winter wonderland high above the Las Vegas Strip open to the public Wednesday, Nov. 21, 2018.
One of the best features of the ice rink at the Cosmopolitan is the gorgeous views from above the Vegas Strip. Visitors to the rink will enjoy roof-top ice skating on more than 4,200 square feet of real ice. Each night the ice skating rink will see a light snow shower every 30 minutes. Days and times vary for the snow showers.
You can enjoy the beautiful winter wonderland without the skating. The Cosmopolitan also has fire pits for roasting s’mores and adult renditions of seasonal culinary classics. The bar also serves seasonally warm boozy drinks like Hot Toddies to keep you warm.
